Ill have to try that. Just wanted to say that this is just a aftermarket fuel pump. No performance brand or what have you. Also the engine is from a 76 Chevy 3/4 ton Pu. I installed it in my 83 Chevy Pu 1/2 ton. I wasn't to sure what to set the timing to. When i called for specs. I was told a 76 Pu engine was something like 8 degrees btdc then i was told a 83 was set at 10 or 12 degrees btdc. Depending if it was a California model. I'm from Texas so i set it at around 9 Degrees if that makes sense. Not sure if this is my problem. I read somewhere that the mechanical fuel pumps have a spring by the arm and that when it goes bad it will shoot up the fuel pressure.Also i purchased this truck form a guy that had it parked for 2 yrs. Already resealed the whole engine. It is basically a stock 350 engine with a rv cam and a quadrajet. Thank you all for your time.
